eggs benedict

A Sunday brunch favorite. I made them with split & toasted pan de sal ( a popular breakfast roll in Manila delivered by vendors usually in bicycles every morning still warm from the local bakery to your doorstep. Allow me to correct the writers of an international bread book, a copy of which I have, that bread is not popular in Asia since rice is the staple food but their research probably may not have brought them to Manila (again!) because if they went there, they would have surely found out about "pan de sal" which is a daily fare enjoyed in the entire country). Cold cuts may be used instead of the regular Canadian bacon. The hollandaise sauce was just the store-bought instant kind which works no problem. Served with Manchego cheese slices on the side, this makes an awesome breakfast food.
